Why did you join USG?

I joined USG because I saw a unique opportunity. As a transfer student, I found it challenging to integrate into the community at first; however, as time passed, I forged many amazing friendships by getting involved in the outstanding clubs at Fordham. My wide range of club memberships allowed me to interact with many students and hear their concerns about the campus. Therefore, I seek to represent the concerns of all students and assure that Fordham is a home for everyone, freshmen, and transfers alike.

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

I want to work with both the Dean of Gabelli and the Dean of Rose Hill to increase programs for transfer students in order to engage with their fellow students and clubs on campus. Additionally, I seek to increase the number of printers available to students and improve the efficiency of the current printers on campus.

If you really knew me, you’d know that…

I love cars and books.
